The Night Before Christmas
Filled with gentle humor and lots of audience participation, this very special event is sure to be a holiday treat for children of all ages. Written by Deborah Ann Percy and Arnold Johnston, the story takes place in the home of the Moore family on Christmas Eve, 1822. Mother is baking cookies, the children are trimming the tree and father (with the help of youngsters in the audience) is composing one of the most beloved yuletide poems of all time. If you're looking for a wonderful way to brighten your holidays, look no further than the world premiere of The Night Before Christmas.
